Thanks for the info; purchased the MA from Traveland and for what we paid for it i can afford to put a lot of money into it and still be nowhere near what I would have to spend to get a unit like what we want. I would have to put over $60k into it to even be close to $100k total investment. Don't think I can get what I want for a $100k so I think I will continue down this route

I've been in there many times and seen major work being done to RVs in their shop ( as in fairly old units being reno'd and fixed up). I bought our last RV there and they were very good to deal with, both sales and service side of things.

One other option you might want to think about is trading your unit in on a newer model. Travelland RV in Langley has some nice newmars for sale for a decent price. With your reno budget plus trade value, you might be close to one of their coachs.

That would be a fun project. Particularly if a DIY'r.
However, if you can afford $100+ an hour labor, get the best stuff put in, then enjoy mile after mile. REmember to post pictures here, as did other owners. Your upgrades and custom add-ins will serve as fertilizer (the good kind, not the smelly type) for us DIY'rs with more modest means.
